Writing

Whether it involves working on a blog entry or developing a book or article idea, I am always looking for fresh ways to connect theology with every day life.

My “inspirations” usually come through some kind of life situation (frequently involving my children) that provides an illustration of a particular theological idea. Writing is also a wonderful way to express what God is doing in my life and how He is developing my faith — both in heart and mind.

Truth Seekers: Parent Preparedness

Read Krista's thoughts about reaching Christian teens with sound evidence for our faith.

My husband enjoys watching “prepper” shows, where people spend significant time and money preparing to survive long after a disaster strikes.

Read Krista's thoughts about reaching Christian teens with sound evidence for our faith.

Last fall I launched an apologetics club at my church to help buttress the faith of my daughter and her friends. At the very first meeting we wrote up a list of the teens’ faith questions. Want to know what their biggest questions were? more...

Truth Seekers: Becoming the Solution

Read Krista's thoughts about reaching Christian teens with sound evidence for our faith.

One day, it hit me that in a few short years, my daughter and her friends will be heading for college where they’ll face serious challenges to their faith. I wondered, what can I do to help transition their childhood faith into adult conviction? Out of this concern was born the Truth Seekers club—a safe environment at my church where teens can ask their faith questions and investigate answers. more...

Truth Seekers: Reaching the Next Generation for Christ

Read Krista's thoughts about reaching Christian teens with sound evidence for our faith.

Last spring, during an academic conference, I found myself engaged in multiple variations of the same conversation: “Isn’t it tragic that the next generation is falling away from the faith?” As I flew home, I asked God to show me how I could become part of the solution instead of merely moaning about the problem. more...
